    A lot of guys on here run the 1/2 ton stuff and sing it's praises. They can be run without breaking stuff.
    I personally broke a 12-bolt rear. I never broke my 10 bolt front or my d44 front. But I don't wheel as hard as a lot of the guys on here do.
    What I notice:
    When I had the smaller stuff, I was a little more pro 3/4 and 1/2 ton. Maybe it's a pysche thing in that if you think it won't break, maybe it won't.
    Now that I have the 1 ton drivetrain, I can actually look at axle shaft diamter, ring gear dimater, spline count, and the size of the ujoints and realize that you can beef up a smaller axle, but it's still a smaller axle.

    Don't get me wrong, I liked my 3/4 ton axle set and even my 1/2 ton axle set plenty, but I always realized that one day, sooner or later, I would find the 1 ton set and that I shouldn't spend a lot of money on my 'temporary' axles that were temporary for over 4 years.
